rights of ittings own people the iranian government continues to prop up a dictator in damascus and support terrorist groups abroad. time and again it has failed to take the opportunity to demonstrate its nuclear program is peaceful. >> mitt romney also discussed foreign affairs today including iran, this morning at the clinton global initiative. >> today we face a world with unprecedented challenges and complexities. we should not forget and cannot forget that not far from here, a voice of unspeakable evil and hatred has spoken out, threatening israel, and the entire civilized world. we come together knowing the bitterness of hate is no match for the strength of love. >> joining me now for our daily fix, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor and managing editor of post politics.com and jeffrey goldberg, national correspondent for the atlantic. jeffery to you, did the president talk tough enough to iran to quiet the critics, including israel's benjamin netanyahu that he has not been tough and consistent enough on his policy towards iran? >> the language was sharp and not in front of apec

progress on the israeli/palestinian track. distance between the israeli and u.s. government today. iran closer to a nuclear weapon than has eve been in recent years. and syria you have some 20,000 syrians dead andssad sti i po hng t power. there is a sense that there's an unraveling going on abroad and the president citing these doesn't mean we're making progress. >> speaking to iran, his point, e administration's point, you cannoteliver the kdf g akou when you reach 20% on this percentage of your enriched uranium fuel, that a little ambiguity is big thing that iran knows and israel knows and the rest of the world kns that the united states is tnget iet a weapon or capability of getting a weapon. >> first of all, i think there's a balance. you need to strike a balance. what many including governor romney and congressman ryan and others around the world have said you have to be specific about this capability point. that you have to be able to alth iannd the world that just building the weapon or getting close to building the weapon, is not the red line. having the tools at their disposal

libya, people rose up against their dictators because they were fed up with governments that served the interests of a few at the expense of everyone else. but economic and social challenges did not disappear with the dictators. >> so what do you say to senators like rand paul and other republicans who now want to cut off all aid to any of the countries where there were protests despite bipartisan opposition by some of his colleagues in the senate foreign relations committee? >> i say don't panic. don't be afraid. stay the course and understand that what we really need is deeper engagement. i mean, for example, we need to increase the number of fulbrights in all these countries, bring students over here so they can learn how we do business. send students there. i mean one of the great developments of the arab spring is that we started a peace corps mission in tunisia and we should have more. we should make sure -- we need to look for ways to deepen the engagement and strengthen the forces of democracy and to not blink just because some radical extremist violent people want to chase

next year. the united states government was right not to show up in the general assembly. at least 12 others countries boycotted the event. that's a little unusual at the united nations but he deserves it because he doesn't ever say anything useful and given our strong support for israel in particular, we had to make a statement today, the obama administration did make a statement, we're not going to listen to him anymore. >> do you think that the administration made a mistake in having the president really not in action here? this is the first time, really unprecedented for him to have no bilateral meetings not with just our closest aallies, but morsi is here, this is a pivotal moment with egypt, he spoke to the united nations, all these meetings held by hillary clinton and not by the president of the united states. jon stewart interviewing king abdullah of jordan last night and posing that question. >> you were at the u.n. today. does anyone -- is there any discussion amongst world leaders about the american president not being available for face-to-face meetings? is that upsetting?

. but when you ask them specifically about the situation in american government right now they said the real issue that's hanging over mitt romney is just the fact that people hate, they detest, congress, the fact that nothing gets done in washington and as one man put it, he thought it hung around mitt romney's neck like an albatross because the house of representatives, of course, has a republican majority. nonetheless, what was interesting here, while the president spoke to a larger crowd this was appeared like a specific messaging event where romney was speaking to a smaller crowd, like you're running for mayor of a major city or governor of the state of virginia. only 200 people here today. >> the other thing that's really interesting to watch in the last 48 hours how focused they are on defending against the 47% remark from the videotape that came out last week because this is something that was very clear in his comments to our colleague, ron allen in ohio yesterday. let's watch. >> don't forget, i got everybody in my state insure, 100% of the kids in state have health insura
